Investing in technology can yield significant cost-savings through greater efficiency and a freedom to work more strategically and with greater impact. Tech-savvy organizations know that properly budgeting for technology is a must, as money is oftentimes the greatest obstacle to improving your nonprofit’s technology. Yet knowing what to consider, how to calculate, and assessing what matters can seem daunting.

In this workshop, Joshua Peskay, Dawn Gallery-Khan and Karim Beldjilali of RoundTable Technology will help participants identify budgeting guidelines, learn the anatomy of a nonprofit IT budget, categories of spending, and the unique challenges nonprofits face trying to invest in technology improvements. We will explore improvements nonprofits can make on their own at very low cost through process improvement, training, communications and use of the panoply of free and low-cost technology resources available to nonprofits. Also, we will identify potential funding sources for different types of technology projects.

Over the course of the workshop, we'll be guiding attendees through the completion of a technology budget, preparing attendees for submersion in the Technology Budget Shark Tank. The last part of this workshop will be the "Shark Tank", where selected participants will pitch their budget and key investments to a panel of sharks comprised of facilitators and audience members.
